Abstract:

How does one summarize the thirty-nine books of the Old Testament? How might one determine the message of the Old Testament? This book attempts an answer to these questions. The answer is taken from a single Scripture passage, Exodus 5:22-6:8, which is here considered a theological "Table of Contents" for the Old Testament. In addition to such topics as Deliverance, Community, and Experiencing God, the book has an extended discussion on "Land", a subject which deals with a wide range of interests but which only rarely receives attention in books on biblical theology. The current edition features reflections and a set of discussion questions following each of the seventeen chapters - a boon for university and seminary teachers and students, and of large help for church study groups. --back cover.
